Welcome to our very first DIY Challenge. Much like our Photo Challenges (#1 & #2) this is NOT a contest, but rather a shared experience. For this challenge we are asking you to write the first line of an imaginary novel using Alejandor Colunga’s Niño con Triciclo (Boy with Tricycle) as your inspiration. This artwork is from the exhibit: Miradas: Ancient Roots in Modern and Contemporary Mexican Art: Works from the Bank of America Collection currently on view at the Museum through September 16, 2012. Entries must be limited to one sentence containing no more than 50 words. Consider what you see in the image, the time period, culture, and social setting of the artwork, and interpret it in your own way. Inspiration can also be drawn from the original Music of Goliath Flores, who created an amazing playlist inspired by the Miradas exhibit. Please keep in mind that this is a family friendly site, and no inappropriate material will be published.
From June 22nd – September 16th, send your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org. All appropriate entries will be shared on the Museum’s Facebook page.
